People ask me about the method that I developed to cure my tension-based chronic low-back pain, after suffering with it for nearly two decades.
QUESTION: What kind of medical treatment does it entail?
ANSWER: It is not a medical treatment.
QUESTION: What kind of exercises does it include, yoga, pilates, or stretching?
ANSWER: Is it is not an exercise program.
QUESTION: Does it require biofeedback or meditation?
ANSWER: Biofeedback and meditation are very good, in my opinion, but those activities are not part of this technique.
The TMR method involves a type of self empowerment that comes directly from the pain sufferer themselves. A series of practices that change the current physical condition, and also manage the issues that continue to cause pain. There are no doctors, chiropractors, therapists or exercise gurus who can deliver this healing, as it is implemented, practiced and maintained by the individual themselves.
Directing ones own healing can be challenging at first, because of the fear they aren't doing it the right way. There is some trial and error, but eventually the individual will find a feeling of inner strength, and confidence when they realize that they can now control the cause of their pain. If the condition should flare up again in the future, they will find comfort in knowing that they may be self reliant in their care.
Taking control over my own healing has been an extremely positive and gratifying to me.
It is my hope that many chronic pain sufferers will have the same joyful experience of discovery in their healing, and gaining control over their pain.
After trying every conventional therapy for crippling, chronic low-back pain, I discovered the problem was completely within my control. I experienced an amazing health transformation in a matter of weeks. Mind-Body medicine worked for me, and it can for can too!
